Opened a dark wood top (w/turkey logo) WTKS from 2006. I've never tasted a pewter top WTKS, but in isolation, this one is very enjoyable. It's straightforward -- dry, woody, not much on the nose -- but still rich and tasty. It's more to my liking than the light wood top WTKS I've sampled.
Went to Keylime Cove with the kids and another family for the weekend and I brought with bottles of 2009 Pappy 15, Pappy 20, Old Fitz Prime 6/86 1984, and Old Weller Special Reserve 7/90 from 1977...we opened them all and drank well this weekend!
You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!
VOB BIB and Baby Saz. Very different pours. Like the Saz, love the VOB.
On deck to replace a few recently emptied bottles are; OWA, Weller SR, Weller 12, J T S Brown BIB, 1980 ND Old Taylor 80 proof, and a private bottling of BT from Minnesota.

EWSB 2000. First time I've tried it, and I was very impressed. I think its one of the best pours I've had at less that $25 a bottle.
"I suffered from ADD as a child. My parents treated it with a naturally grown remedy that I was made to harvest myself....a switch."
Opened my first (and hopefully not last) bottle of the PHC 5th edition. After enjoying half the pour I decided to see what JH had to say about it in Whisky Advocate. I found myself mostly in agreement. Particularly the part about it being "perilously drinkable."
Whiskey is man's attempt at Heaven.
